I am writing to you today to share my thoughts about why I am supporting Democrat Adam Cote for governor of Maine.
I heard about Adam when he announced his candidacy. I signed up for his campaign mailing list and was intrigued and heartened by his message: Specifically, his message of inclusiveness and his commitment to making Maine a place where all are welcome and valued resonates deeply with me.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Adam Cote said the governor has not delivered on all of his promises.
“The fundamental promise Gov. LePage made repeatedly to Maine people was, ‘I am a job creator who knows how to grow Maine’s economy.’ ” Cote said. “All personality points aside, the fundamental fact, seven-plus years later, is he has not gotten the job done.
“Maine lags New England and the country when it comes to job, income and economic growth. And rural Maine has been hit the hardest.”
Right now, Maine has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lead the way in energy innovation, build a strong statewide economy that works for all of us, create thousands of good jobs, increase our energy independence while reducing people’s energy costs and protect our quality of life.
